Job Description

Applications are invited from fresh PhD graduates for a Research Fellow position in the Dr Prateek Bansal's research group at the National University of Singapore (NUS). The work would be largely methodological and would address challenging questions related to mobility behavior and the adoption of emerging technologies at an individual level and an urban scale.

At individual-level, the research would involve investigating challenges associated with the existing consumer behaviour models in psychology (e.g., underlying assumption and econometric identification), revising them to understand economic decisions based on the collected neurophysiological data (EEG and eye tracking), and develop new Bayesian estimation methods. This is a relatively emerging area of research, and thus the resulting publications are likely to make high impact to the field of behavioural science.

At an urban scale, the research would involve advancing deep generative models to simulate and forecast synthetic population and activity patterns of city.

The successful applicant is expected to pursue independent as well as collaborative research, must be willing participate in writing grant proposals and in the supervision of doctoral/postgraduate research students.

Job Requirements

  • Possess a PhD in Travel behaviour, Management, Economics, Statistics, Psychology or related disciplines
  • Is interested in conducting lab-based behavioural experiments   
  • Has good understanding of Classical and Bayesian econometric models.
  • Is proficient in programming econometric models in R, Python, or MATLAB.
